Happy New Year!

As 2009 and my 6th decade approaches the end, I find it interesting to think back on where I was at the end of each decade I've spent on this earth. I won't bore you and describe my thoughts at each of those points in my life, but I will say when I looked forward from the end of each of those decades, I thought I had a pretty good idea of what the next decade held for me. Looking back, I realize I didn't have a clue. It reminds me of the story in Exodus when Moses implored God to show himself. God told Moses to shield his eyes as He approached, then He said Moses could watch Him as He passes. That's the way life has gone for me. I've known God was in my life, but I could never see what He had in store for me as He approached. It was only after He passed could I see the many blessings he has provided in good times, but especially in bad times. It bolsters my faith to think of God that way. I know He blesses us all as He approaches. Happy New Year!
